Citigroup Inc. Announces the Reference Yields and Total Consideration for Fixed Spread Offers



  Citigroup Inc. Announces the Reference Yields and Total Consideration for
  Fixed Spread Offers

Business Wire

NEW YORK -- December 11, 2012

Citigroup Inc. (“Citigroup”) today announced the applicable Reference Yield
and Total Consideration in the previously announced cash tender offers with
respect to each series of Notes subject to the Fixed Spread Offers listed in
the table below.

Notes tendered pursuant to these Offers reflect Citigroup’s continued robust
liquidity position and are consistent with its recent liability management
initiatives. Year-to-date, and excluding the Offers, Citigroup has decreased
its outstanding long-term debt by approximately $13.9 billion through
liability management initiatives, including the previously announced
redemptions of trust preferred securities. Coupled with the ongoing natural
maturing of long-term debt that requires no refinancing, these initiatives
result in lower borrowing costs and reduce the overall level of Citigroup’s
long-term debt outstanding. Citigroup will continue to consider opportunities
to repurchase its long-term as well as short-term debt based on several
factors, including without limitation the economic value, potential impact on
Citigroup’s net interest margin and borrowing costs and the overall remaining
tenor of its debt portfolio.

The Fixed Spread Offers are being made pursuant to the offer to purchase dated
November 21, 2012 (the “Offer to Purchase,” as may be amended or supplemented
from time to time), and the related letter of transmittal (the “Letter of
Transmittal,” as may be amended or supplemented from time to time) which set
forth in more detail the terms and conditions of the Fixed Spread Offers.
Capitalized terms used but not otherwise defined in this announcement shall
have the meaning given to them in the Offer to Purchase.

The Reference Yield and Total Consideration for each series of Notes subject
to the Fixed Spread Offers were determined at or around 2:00 p.m., New York
City time, on December 10, 2012 in accordance with the terms set forth in the
Offer to Purchase by reference to the relevant Fixed Spread and the relevant
Reference U.S. Treasury Security as follows:
